Aerial & Drone

Aerial photography from both helicopters and drone, with a Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA. While I prefer to use helicopters for aerial photography, drones are more useful for low altitude, more detailed work, especially in urban spaces. I’ve shot numerous aerial assignments, including for my regular shipbuilding clients Vigor Industrial, Pacific Ship & Austal USA. Other clients include photographing Microsoft’s sprawling Redmond campus against the Cascade Mountains, local landscape architects Site Workshop and photo shoots of US Navy destroyers undergoing sea trials.
